December 2011 Knowledge Newsletter
The holiday season is quickly approaching. I want to wish everyone a very happy and safe holiday. I hope the New Year brings the fulfillment of all your dreams. It is the season when our hearts are supposed to be filled with peace and joy but many find this difficult to achieve what with gift buying and the stress involved in preparing for the holidays.
While we all want to enjoy the season with friends and family, focusing on how we can bring more peace and joy into our lives would assure us of a stress free holiday. So what does joy feel like and how can we attain it? Joy can feel like a type of inner excitement or sense of inner peace. A feeling that you can relax because you sense all is well in your world. Did you know that being joyous is our birthright? God did not create us to be unhappy and struggle through life. Experiencing life as a struggle is a choice we make.
We can create joy in our lives by living in the NOW in every moment just like dolphins and other animals do. You never see animals worrying or thinking “what if” this or that or that happens. Dolphins are playful all the time and jump for joy at every opportunity. Perhaps we need to learn from them or just pretend to be a dolphin and be joyful all the time.
When you are in the presence of someone who feels joyous and peaceful, you will feel peaceful yourself as their energy will influence you. So you need to decide who you want to spend time with. Also be mindful of what energy you bring to your interactions with others. If you are feeling stressed out, they will sense that and may prefer to spend less time with you.
When we are in a state of joy, we shift into a higher consciousness than normal. We experience this higher consciousness nightly during our dream state so it is not really anything new. Meditation is a way we can raise our vibration and create more peace in our lives. So try to find a few minutes every day to sit quietly and breathe in deeply and slowly for about five minutes or longer. You will notice how much calmer you will feel afterwards.
Remember happiness is an inside job. It is not the job of others to make you happy so stop blaming those around you for failing to do so. While it is true others can buy you nice presents, provide you with a good life style, be kind and loving, but that does not guarantee inner peace. When we really think about it, it is not the outer material things that usually make us happy. Knowing we are loved and able to love ourselves will bring us more joy and serenity than material things. Perhaps it is wise to take a moment and reflect on what really makes you happy.
Asking what makes you happy is a good question to ask yourself. I often ask people what makes them happy and I often get “I don’t know “as answer. For me it is being in nature and being creative. Trees, water and rocks never get mad at you and always give off a soothing relaxing energy. Perhaps spending more time in nature, preferably with few people around would bring you inner peace.
Loving and accepting ourselves completely relieves us of the stress we place on ourselves to live up to our expectations and the expectations of others. In addition, accepting others as they are will create more harmonious relationships.
Being loving to yourself and others will increase your joy. Most people enjoy giving and seeing the appreciation of their kindness in the eyes of others.
Another way to create more inner peace is to let go of your negative thoughts about yourself and others. It is very difficult to be negative and joyous at the same time. So you need to decide which path you want to follow.
We are all experiencing tremendous changes in our lives right now. Going through these shifts with peace and joy would make it a lot
easier. If you need help to create more joy in your life, please feel free to contact me. I am available for personal, telephone and Skype readings, empowerment coaching, regressions, and healing
either by responding to this newsletter or calling me at 505 474 6363 or 514 312 2451.
Gift Certificates The holidays are fast approaching. What a good idea it would be to give a gift of a service rather than buying something made in China. Not only would this help our local economy, but giving a gift of a service like getting something repaired or a reading would be greatly appreciated and can make a big difference in a person’s life. The recipient would really appreciate your thoughtfulness and your unique gift idea. Gift certificates are available for my services for the holidays or at any time.
